Lifetime Brands supplies the top housewares retailers in North America. We provide product for all channels of distribution at multiple price points. Our facilities are strategically located near ports of entry on both the East and West Coasts and we operate over 1.6 million square feet of warehouse and manufacturing space in five separate locations. Our West Coast distribution center in Rialto, California, opened in 2018, serves as our largest facility at over 700,000 square feet.
Our distribution centers have advanced electronic interfaces, including the latest radio frequency, computer and barcode technology for increased efficiency and accuracy. Lifetime Brands ships and delivers product quickly, efficiently and on time.
In 2007 we purchased a 30% interest in the largest housewares manufacturer and marketer in Mexico, Ekco, S.A.B. (since renamed Grupo Vasconia, S.A.B.) This venture has provided us an avenue of expanded distribution in Mexico and in other Latin American markets for Lifetime’s numerous products and brands.
Similarly, we have also formed a strategic alliance with Accent-Fairchild Group, Inc. in Canada to expand the presence of our brands and products in the Canadian market. Having been Lifetime’s distributor in Canada for over 15 years, Accent-Fairchild has strong relationships with Canada’s leading retailers and is the logical partner to help us increase our penetration in the Canadian market.
In 2011, Lifetime, Accent-Fairchild, Grupo Vasconia and Fackelmann GmbH Co. KG form Housewares Corporation of Asia Limited to design and manufacture kitchenware products in Asia for sale to customers in North and South America.
Later that year, Lifetime acquired Creative Tops Limited and Creative Tops Far East. Together with Lifetime’s established partnerships in North and Central America, this strategic combination creates a global leader in the housewares business with a focus on quality and innovation.
The 2014 acquisition of Thomas Plant Limited, trading as Kitchen Craft, makes Lifetime a more effective global resource to our key retailer partners. Kitchen Craft’s broad ranges of kitchenware products fill a gap in our existing UK housewares assortment that will complement the tableware and gift assortments marketed by Creative Tops.
Later that year, Lifetime acquired the business and certain assets of La Cafetiere from the Greenfield Group Limited including exclusive distribution rights. The addition of the La Cafetiere and Randwyck brands to Lifetime’s global platform further strengthens our presence in the United Kingdom and Continental Europe.
